About Our Network Gatherings
Food: Bring your own “brown bag” lunch. Desserts and beverages are provided by the host church, and you are welcome to bring your own meal and eat with everyone else.
Meeting Times: The meeting is from noon-1:30. To encourage learning and collaboration we invite you to arrive 10-15 minutes early, or feel free to stay longer to network with other leaders.
Our Purpose: TCAMP seeks to deliver two important values to local churches and global missions leaders:
- Connect mission leaders to add momentum to the global missions movement. The Twin Cities is privileged to have a strong, collaborative missions community. Few other US cities have such a community.
- Support the professional development of mission movements by sharing best practices and opportunities for learning. TCAMP serves as a professional peer network for mission leaders from church staffs, mission committees, field workers and other ministry entities.
